All of it.
Anonymous asked:
Sam, what do you think about legacy? About wanting to leave a mark on the world? We have such short lives and it seems like human nature to want to be remembered. But in the scope of the universe, what is legacy?

Life Is Art

It is folly. There are no permanent legacies. Alexander the Great is dust. Julius Caesar is ashes. Even the Buddha and Jesus are known only by faint whisperings probably very much changed and distorted. Live this life. Make a mark here and now for tomorrow you will be ashes scattered over the sea. 

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
